News for UW-Stout Alumni, Parents and Friends Spring 1992 CHANCELLOR'S COLUMN - Impressions of Cuba Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen The door to Cuba was opened briefly late in February, allowing a small delegation from UW-Stout to explore educational opportunities there. It was a memorable experience. The seven-day visit was long enough to gain some strong impressions about Cuba, but too short to draw any firm conclusions. At the invitation of INTUR, an agency formed by the Cuban government to develop tourism, I joined two of our staff members, Esther Fahm, dean of the School of Home Economics, and Jafar Jafari, associate professor of hospitality and tourism, for a visit which began with our late night arrival in Havana February 24. Havana is a large city, nearly two million people reside there, yet I was struck by the almost total darkness that greeted our flight. Streets were nearlyvoid of traffic and while the main streets had street lights, the side streets were normally totally dark. It was very easy to imagine what cities must have been like in the nineteenth century before the development of modern, efficient street lighting. When I had the opportunity to tour Havana during the daylight hours, I was struck by its deterioration. Everything seems in need of repair; buildings, roads, communication systems, water systems, everything. It is a gray, somber city and somehow the word melancholy captures how I felt as we visited this Cuban capital. Because there is little electrical power, the buildings are dimly lit and everything inside seemed to reflect the exterior. Roofs leaked, ceiling tiles were stained, plumbing was usually in ill repair and at times running water was a prize commodity. In contrast, I gained a very positive impression of the people. We met primarily with university faculty and officials and governmental professionals. I was struck by their optimism, their curiosity about the United States, their pride in the revolution and what it accomplished in the area of health care and education. Health care is generally good and free to all Cubans. Their elementary and secondary education is mandatory, and it is generally accepted that nearly all Cubans are literate. I came away with the impression,.too, that these people realize that without normal relations with our country, Cuba cannot truly prosper. After five days in Havana, we drove 90 miles east to Veradero, a coastal city that is experiencing rapid tourism growth. Although we drove at night, there were hundreds of bicyclists and pedestrians going in either direction along the sides of the highway. With the tap on needed Soviet oil closed, transportation is almost at a standstill. Oil supplies, when available, go to industry and agriculture. If you need to go from one town to the next, you have no alternative but to join the army of bicyclists and pedestrians. Public transportation is scarce. Importation of American automobiles ceased in 1959. Later model autos are generally the Russian Ladas. With no inventory of parts available, autos are literally wired together to keep them running. Our group concluded that if you need a 1959 Chevrolet, Cuba is the place to find one. Along a 12-mile stretch of coast from Veradero, with some of the world's most beautiful beaches, there are 7,000 hotel rooms . Plans call for adding 23,000 more in this decade. Cuba now attracts approximately 300,000 tourists annually, the same number the country ailracted before Castro look control. Cuba would like to host 2 million tourists a year. The government is counting on dollars from tourism to pave the road to economic recovery. With one of the largest education programs in hospitality and tourism, it's apparent that UW-Stout has much to offer Cuba's emerging industry. But there are numerous constraints governing the development of any relationship. Our government has sanctions in place that preclude any arrangement at this time. Before our group left for Cuba, the State Department WILLKOMM HONORED AS OUTSTANDING ALUMNI Therese Willkomm, Ankeny, Iowa, received the Outstanding Alumni award during winter commencement exercises December 14. Willkomm has been program director of farm family rehabilitation management for the Easter Seal Society of Iowa Inc., in Des Moines, since 1986. Her responsibilities include providing rehabilitation services to farm families affected by physical disabilities and providing agricultural worksite modification consultation. Prior to joining the Easter Seal Society, Willkomm held positions with Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN; Management Consulting and Rehabilitation Services Inc., Ankeny, LA; Mankato State University, Mankato,MN; Drake University, Des Moines, LA; and the program for Independent Living on campus. Willkomm received a bachelor's degree in vocational rehabilitation from Stout in 1982, and st master of science degree in vocational rehabilitation from Drake University, Des Moines, in 1984. She has been published (left to right) Louis and Joanne Willkomm joined Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen to honor their daughter, Therese Willkomm '82 as the Outstanding Alumni Award recipient extensively, and has presented on rural rehabilitation technology and rural service delivery issues innumerous states and foreign countries. Willkomm was president and founder of the Iowa Rehabilitation Technology Alliance in 1988; founder of the Dunn County Citizen Advocacy Program for Developmental Disabilities in 1980; recipient of the CORA Award for Women in Communications in 1990; and Young Woman of the Year in 1984. She has also received several research grants. made it clear that we could do nothing that might aid the Cuban economy, even forbidding us to provide information that might be helpful. University of Havana officials that met with us eagerly sought to establish faculty and student exchange programs or short courses in tourism training. Although they need expertise in tourism, there isn't a single educational area that they are not interested in. Cuba has been out of the mainstream for more than 30 years. The country offers proof that isolationism can be stifling. While other countries search for new identities, Cuba appears to be on the brink of change of some kind as well. I expect that in this decade we will see the United States and Cuba formally recognize one another, establish trade relationships, and normalize relations. This is logical and realistic, but expect very little until after the November elections. UW-Stout has a long standing commitment to international education. In this instance, we are one of only several universities in the country to have explored programs with Cuba. From my perspective, this kind of global networking helps UW-Stout keep pace with change. and helps UW-Stout grow educationally.

Theparentphonathonispartoftheoverall annual fund-raising campaign conducted by the Stout Foundation on behalf of current needs of the university. Current UW-Stout students staffed the phones and enjoyed visiting with parents, reminding them about Family Weekend and explaining the Annual Fund. "It was great. The parents here are very friendly. My best experience was when I got my first $100 pledge," said Andrea Hougaard. "It felt good to know that people can afford to give and don't hesitate to help out." "The phonathon was a new experience for me, and I enjoyed the variety of students that I worked with. My best experience was reaching an alum who was also a parent. He had a lot of interesting things to say, and we both enjoyed the call." Thank you to all the parents who made this project so successful and enjoyable. This is your invitation to the... Fourth Annual f? Big Reunion" Randall L. Pickering Your Stout Alumni Association has always focused on being the mechanism for us as Alumni to remain in contact with the University and our fellow Alumni. The question is, how do we foster this contact...how often...by what means? The Alumni Association Board of Directors has directed the staff and executive committee to undertake a review of our strategic plan. In any good management model, there is always a phase for "evaluation." Overthe next six months, that is what the Association wants to do. Evaluate itself in terms of how well our programs are working to foster and maintain contact between alumni and the University.

We are not looking for revolution, but evolution. Alumni gatherings, participation in Department recommended conferences, and the OUTLOOK have been well received by Alumni. But in true Stout tradition, we want to do it better. My challenge to you this month is to give the subject some thought. What could the Alumni Association do to improve the post- graduation interaction between Alumni and the University. Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Franks The UW-Stout Alumni Association Board of Directors met on Saturday, March 14. at the Ground Round Restaurant in Richfield, MN. At this meeting the board addressed some very important agenda items that have significant impact on our 1992-93 alumni programs. As you are a valued asset and your involvement can only enhance our ability to fulfill our purpose, I would like to highlight some key decisions made that impact the Association's homecoming and reunion activities structure. A significant discussion occurred concerning homecoming attendance which has changed considerably over I In* jcars. Toikiy ;ilumm" arc all experiencing heavy demands on their time in both their professional and their private lives. It was agreed that homecoming is an important tradition. However, the Association agreed it should reevaluate the current activities. The past program for homecoming was to host apre-parade brunch, reunions and recognize the Distinguished and Service award winners at a post game banquet and dance. In an effort to draw more of an audience to these activities, the board voted to discontinue the banquet and dance. Instead, the Association will focus the activities on an expanded brunch incorporating the recognition of the distinguished and service awards. Classes interested in special reunion programs in conjunction with homecoming are welcome to initiate such activity. Reunions beginning in 1 993 will be held in the summer months with more of an "alumni college" focus — both social and educational. This change will affect the reunions for the classes of 42. 52. 62. 66, 72 and 82. Any class member interested in participating on the working committee for their class, please contact the Alumni Office at 715/232-1 151. Watch for complete details of the 1992 homecoming activities including the registration form in the August issue of the Outlook. □ □ □ a a □ n a D o a D What Can an Accurate Address [eae to You?

The scholarship will be awarded annually to undergraduate students- who are majoring in industrial technology with a concentration in organization management. It is the first scholarship to be awarded for students in that program. Ralph began his Westinghouse career in 1 965 as an instructor in fire control. He held sales, supervisory andmanagementpositions for Westinghouse divisions before assuming the leadership of Elliott Valvein 1984. Ralph was instrumental in doubling the gross sales at Elliott after years of decline due to Elliott's direct relationship to the oil industry. Ralph attributed the success to the employees. One official explained that Ralph had the ability to inspire his employees, and Ralph's comment, "It's not the TQ' but the 'I will' that's important," reflected his confidence in the workforce at Elliott. The Arthur M. Nakatani Endowed Education Scholarship John A. and Kathryn M. Jarvis Scholarship Friends and family of the late John Jarvis have established a scholarship in the name of both Kathryn and her late husband, John. The $500 scholarship will be awarded each year to a student who is a graduate of a Dunn County Wisconsin high school and who is enrolled in the School of Industry and Technology. The scholarship wilfbe awarded beginning the fall of 1992. John Jarvis served as dean of industrial education during the years of change and growth. He provided the leadership which lead to the subsequent reorganization of the School of Industry and Technology. He was a leading force in the industrial education profession. He authored several textbooks and held major offices in all of the related professional industrial education organizations while continuing to serve as the dean. Kathryn continues to live in Menomonie. Dori and Mike Ritland Scholarship A Stoutprofessorhas established a$500 scholarship for a psychology major or public relations specialization student The Dori and Mike Ritland Scholarship will be awarded beginning in the fall of 1992 for junior or senior students who are members of the local Society of Human Resource Management , Mike Ritland is a professor of psychology and has been on the university's staff for 28 years. The scholarship will be administered through the Stout University Foundation Inc. "We're pleased to have the opportunity to offer a scholarship in the psychology area with the public marketing emphasis because of Dori and Mike's generosity," said Pat Reisinger, Foundation director. Arthur Nakatani Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen announced the creation of the Stout Foundation Arthur M. Nakatani Scholarship with an initial gift of $25,000 from Mrs. Kiyo Nakatani, Captain CookrHawaii, in memory of her son who died in 1 989. Arthur graduated from UW- Stout in 1971 with a degree in industrial education. He received his master's in vocational, technical and adult education in 1972. He was teaching in the Kealakehe Elementary and Intermediate School in the District of Kona at the time of his death. Mrs. Nakatani said, "Arthur loved his students. He was a born teacher who had found his profession and enjoyed every minute with his students." The $1,250 scholarship will be awarded annually to students who major in education and who exhibit Arthur's abilities with children. A preference will be given to Hawaii residents. Chancellor Sorensen, in accepting the scholarship, remarked, "Teaching is a most important profession. Teachers are the most important individuals in a student's life other than their immediate family. They have a profound influence on students, and we all remember a teacher who positively affected our lives. This scholarship willhonor Arthur's life and, at the same time, honor an individual who will instill the love of learning in others and make a difference in students' lives. Arthur's career will be fulfilled, and continue through the scholarship awardees teaching adventures." 5 ALUMNI IN THE NEWS Stout Graduate to Head First Company in Stout Technology Park Tom S. Cervenka, who graduated from UW-Stout in 1984 with a BS in industrial technology and majored in manufacturing engineering, will head up a "high tech" custom injection molding facility being established in the Stout Technology Park by Phillips Plastics Corporation. The plant will be an automated facility utilizing CAD/CAM and robotics to manufacture medical instruments, devices and tools and medically implantable products that will be marketed worldwide. The plant will initially employ 25 people but anticipates an expansion up to 200 persons in two to three years. This will be the first manufacturing plant in the technology park. Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen and Bruce Siebold, dean of the School of Industry and Technology, welcomed the company and pledged university cooperation to establish a mutually beneficial relationship. In meeting with . Cervenka, bSffd yaffl&J Ra«ta»^ m£m i E2B3J (l-r) Paul Hoffman, Director of the Stout Technology Park; Tom Cei~venka '84, Operations Coordinator for Phillips Plastics; Pat Reisinger, Executive Director of the Stout University Foundation; and Joseph Hollan, Associate Dean of the School of Home Economics the Chancellor indicated that as a result of the technical expertise and resources of the university in the areas of plastics, packaging, rehabilitation technology, technology transfer, etc., the university was well positioned to be of assistance to the company. The Chancellor also noted that the university has received permission to plan an ABET Credited Manufacturing Engineering Program. The dean has indicated a business/ industrial professorship will be extended to Cervenka to facilitate interaction between the company and faculty and students of the university. Cervenka stated that they chose the Stout Technology Park because of the "close relationship with the University of Wisconsin-Stout." Phillips Plastics will initiate manufacturing in a leased 15,000 square foot speculative building but has taken option on an adjacent lot for the possible construction of their own building. They also own six acres in the park on which they eventually plan to construct an educational facility for their company. Paul Hoffman, director of the technology park, said that "Phillips Plastics is exactly the type of company needed in America forthe growth and benefit of the country. It is a company that while serving the needs of society today has a vision for the future and is willing to invest in research and development for the future. It is a perfect first company for the technology park." The summer of 1992 will witness not only the establishment of this "high tech" manufacturing plant but the opening of the 20,000 square foot educational facility of the Chippewa Valley Technical College. One of the priorities for the park, according to Hoffman, is to find funding for an additional speculative building for leasing, as other companies are expressing interest in the Stout Technology Park. Art Graduate Receives Excellence Award Kristine Wohnsen, a 1988 graduate of the art and design department . recently won the Gold Idea VI industrial Desism Excellence Award and was featured in "Innovation," the journal of the Industrial Design Society of America. The competition is one of the top forms of recognition in design. Wohnsen's recognition was for the design of a device called "the Tadpole," a product that is intended for use by infants diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux. GER, as it is also known, is a malfunction of the esophagus muscles that causes frequent return of stomach contents.

Sorensen made his comments recently to a group of top-level Hawaiian officials during a trip to the islands. Each year, 400,000 workers need retraining, Sorensen said, and that high schools and colleges must take steps to ensure graduates are ready for the jobs being offered. ... employment readiness will require a broadly educated, highly trained, technologically qualified workforce," Sorensen said. Sorensen delivered his address in Hawaii at a special breakfast meeting on vocational education, attended by representatives from the Hawaiian State Board of Education, the Hawaiian State Senate, the University of Hawaii and other groups. Sorensen also said that without a skilled, knowledgeable and flexible workforce. America cannot adjust to the new requirements and demands of a world economy. Sorensen pointed to a recent survey conducted by Fortune magazine showing that 77 percent of the 400 executives who responded ranked American education either fair or poor. He also pointed out that about half the high school graduates go on to college and in this group, about 50 percent complete their studies. He said 10 percent of the high school graduates go to technical school and about half graduate. Sorensen said this is of particular concern because today's workers must be enterprising and creative; possess a broad technical background; have the ability to work independently with little supervision; have the ability to link the practical and the theoretical; and be a person who can analyze and find solutions. He told the group that UW-Stout is keeping abreast of changing needs in the STOUT UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION GRANTS ANNOUNCED Dr. Carol Dobrunz, chair of the Stout University Foundation Grants Committee, announced the following faculty and staff awards for 1992-93: The Geraldine Hedberg Faculty and Staff Grants, a recent gift from the Hedberg Foundation to sponsoraportion of the Stout Foundation grant program with a gift of $20,000 for the next five years, were awarded to: •Sputter Coating Samples for use in a Scanning Electron Microscope - Dr. Mary Orfield. The Chemistry Department of UW-Stout received a gift of a scanning electron microscope from 3M. The microscope is now operating but limited to viewing metal samples which conduct electrons. This proposal is a request for a sputter coater which will be used to coat nonconducting samples with a metal or graphite making them suitable for viewing in the SEM and thereby greatly increasing the usefulness of the SEM. •Managing Your Marriage: Relationship Management Seminars for Rural West-Central Wisconsin Couples - Dr. Judy Rommel. The purpose of this project is to develop pilot test and print materials for seminars under the title Managing Your Marriage. These seminars will focus on changes in the economic outlook for farm families which have created strains on management capabilities related to stress, conflict, time and relationships. Materials designed will assist farm couples in transferring farm business management skills to their marital relationship. •Tending Our P's & Q's: Progress and Quality at UW-Stout - Gloria Bjornerud and Margaret Madson. The current period of resource limitation and rapid change suggests that the university must continuously improve quality to achieve progress as well as to stem to the erosion of public confidence toward higher education. This project will provide training and materials related to quality improvement methods for faculty, academic staff and classified personnel. The Stout University Foundation Grants were awarded to: • Library Special Services Directory - Richard Banks/Theresa Muraski. This project is designed to create an electronic directory to the services available for students with disabilities at the UW-Stout Library Learning Center. It will serve as a user friendly program that will show services, equipment and personnel to students, faculty and staff. •Instrumental Music Program at UW-Stout - Cathie Weissman/Jim Moss.

The bands will be able to make a one time trip as far as Milwaukee to perform at city schools with which UW-Stout has . partnership agreements. •Minority Rention Survey - Richard Tafalla. Minority student recruitment at UW-Stout has shown great improvement, however, the retention rate of minority students remains substantially lower than non-minorities. The purpose of this project is to determine factors that contribute to the low minority student retention. •Multicultural Culinary Experience - Gladys Earl. A multicultural culinary experience is planned for Family Weekend to be held on campus April 11, 1992. Participants will research, create and share foods of many cultures. The purpose of this experience is to develop students' knowledge of the foods used by many cultures, provide an opportunity to share culture, and gain and promote an appreciation for and acceptance of foods of other cultures. •Interactive Programs of Ethical Development Outside of the Classroom Environment - Mary McManus/ Thomastine Ureh.

He listed an inventory of some of the partnerships UW-Stout has built with industry, including co-op educational programs, advisory boards, adjunct professors from the private sector, summer internships and the Stout Technology Park. Approval Given to Plan Engineering Degree Approval f or the uni versi ty to plan a new degree program in man ufacturing engineering is another milestone for the institution and perhaps one of the most significant developments of the decade for the UW System, Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen said. Sorensen issued his statement following approval by the University of Wisconsin System Administration for Stout's "entitlement toplan," the first step in a formal process of obtaining a new degree program. The approval followed a first reading of a "change of mission" for the university by the Board of Regents. The university will have about a year to plan curriculum and secure staffing before returning to the Board of Regents to seek final approval of the degree. The new degree will require a slight modification to the university's mission statement to include manufacturing engineering. Final approval for the mission change would come at the same time as final approval forthe degree program. The degree program was proposed after extensive study, including a recent consultants' report that was completed in January, Sorensen said. The consultants' report concluded that the applied nature of preparation for graduation from a proposed UW- Stout manufacturing engineering program would be closely attuned to the needs of medium and small manufacturing firms. School of Home Economics Proposes Name Change The faculty and staff of the School of Home Economics have proposed to Vice Chancellor DePuy that the name of the School be changed to the "College of Human Environmental Services" effective August 1992. Dean Esther Fahm states that the name change is "based on the current focus of academic program offerings and the contemporary mission of the School. Additionally, the proposed change reflects the evolution and development of home economics as a professional field of study in higher education as well as the organization and function of the unit at our University." The American Home" Economics Association recently reported 95 different names for units traditionally known as "Home Economics". ATTN: Industrial Technology Graduates UW-Stout industrial technology graduates who received their degrees between 1981 and 1992 are eligible for automatic certification through the National Association of Industrial Technology (NAIT) as either Certified Industrial Technologiests (CIT) or Certified Senior Industrial Technologists (CSIT) if they have at least five years of appropriate work experience. Students who have graduated from accredited programs (which Stout has been since 1981) are eligible to be certified through a "Grandfather" clause being offered by NAIT until December 1992. After that time they would need to pass a certification examination in order to be allowed to use the CIT or CSIT designation after their name. UW-Stout will be mailing application forms to Stout graduates in September. If you want information before that time, contact: National Association of Industrial Technology, 3157 Packard Road, Suite A, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48108.

University Assists Firm With Reusable Container □ A major Wisconsin manufacturing firm is proving that what's good for the environment can also be good for profits. John Deere's lawn and garden manufacturing plant in Horicon is switching to a reusable container system for its suppliers who now ship parts to the plant in costly, throw-away packaging. The container project is a cooperative venture with another Wisconsin company, Phillips Plastics Corp., and the university. Phillips has developed a computerized system to manage the reusable containers, said Bruce Hendrickson, president of Troix Corp., Division of Phillips Plastics. "We "had to develop a "system that would get the appropriate container to the right place at the right time," Hendrickson said. "The container tracking system will extend from the assembler's station at the Horicon plant to the manufacturing facilities of component parts suppliers, and all the handling and transportation points in between." Hendrickson said the new process will streamline handling procedures, increase product quality, provide a better work environment and reduce costs. In 1990, Phillips and John "What made this project unique was John Deere's willingness to look at the long-range impact not only on productivity but the environment as well " -Larry Schneider, Director Technology Transfer Institute Deere asked Stout to analyze John Deere's materials handling system. "Materials handling is a significant portion of manufacture and delivery costs of consumer goods," said Larry Schneider, director of the Technology Transfer Institute. "It's an important area of concern for companies looking to □ improve productivity. We regularly work with companies to address this issue. What made this project unique was John Deere's willingness to look at the long- range impact not only on productivity but the environment as well." Although John Deere Horicon Works had an a ward- winning recycling program in place, the company sent a significant amount of compacted crating and cartons to landfills. Wisconsin's new and tougher recycling law calls for increased restrictions on landfill use and greater reliance on recycling. As environmental laws become stricter, many manufacturing firms are expected to revamp their production processes. Deere went beyond minimal compliance with the law by implementing the reusable containers. The Stout study indicated that Deere could save more than $500,000 annually with a program that reduced package and landfill costs. UW-Stout Seeks Cuban Contacts By Pamela Bowers EauCIaire Leader-Telegram The University of Wisconsin-Stout chancellor and two faculty members recently traveled to Cuba to look into the possibility of developing some type of exchange program with the University of Havana. Chancellor Charles Sorensen, Esther Fahm, dean of the School of Home Economics, and Jafar Jafari, associate professor of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism, went to Cuba from Feb. 24 to March 2. Their trip was funded by a tourism agency for the Cuban government. "We just got acquainted more or less," Sorensen said. "We signed a very general agreement saying within the laws of both countries we will try to find ways to cooperate." Sorensen said in the near future it may be possible for the vice president and/or the president of University of Havana to visit Menomonie. "Any relationship between the two universities will be difficult now because of the sanctions the United States has against Cuba," Sorensen said. "The U.S. State Department would allow him and UW-Stout representatives (back l-r) Jafar Jafari, associate professor of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism, Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen, Esther Fahm, dean of the School of Home Economics with Cubian hosts Lie. Bernardo Nievares DeLama, Orlando Rangel and Jesus Alvarex Valdes the faculty to travel to Cuba if they agreed not to give information that would help Cuba develop its economy," Sorensen added. "(This was) an attempt to develop a relationship so when we have normal relations with Cuba we'll be in a good position to have cooperative partnerships with Havana," Sorensen said. Sorensen said be believes within a decade the U.S. will lift sanctions and recognize the Cuban government. . At this point it may be possible to develop a faculty and student exchange program with the University of Havana and the two schools could engage in joint research projects, he said. Four American universities have an association with Havana now, Sorensen said. "We hope they'll provide insight into what we can and cannot do, " he said. UW-Stout was contacted by Cuban officials because they are interested in developing tourism, which is a program at the Wisconsin school. Cubans want to increase tourism to spur their economy, Sorensen said. Sorensen said Havana is a grand city, but with poor infrastructure. The city with about two million people is run down and lights are kept off to save electricity. The University of Havana is also deteriorating and in need of repair, Sorensen said. Between 7,000 and 8,000 full-time students attend the college, although the extension programs reach about 25,000 people. Despite the run-down condition of the university, faculty members are upbeat and very active doing research, Sorensen said. For us to have an opportunity to be one of the first schools to work with the University of Havana, to help them when it is legally possible to do so, is exciting," Sorensen said, noting future exchange programs could allow cultural opportunities for UW-Stout students. 9 CLASS NOTES 1933-1969 Lyle Wines BS '33, MS '42, is retired in Cambria, CA, but is still active in the Retired Public Employees Association and the Cambria Round Table.
